Different and yet the same!


I leave these meetings feeling that I haven't caught up enough. There's so much to talk about for each of the years that have passed. Met up with Archana soon after I got in to Kolkata and requested her to round up as many as she could for tea. Went on to Bangalore and met up with Dipu, Linda and Devika Nair. In the excitement of catching up no photos were taken :( Got back to Kolkata and tea at Flury's with Archana, Sangeeta, Munmun and Oni. Getting Oni's number was serendipitous. There was a lady at Indrakshi's party who looked at me as though she knew me and I thought she was Oni. It turned out she wasnt but she'd met Oni recently and was nice enough to give me her number! Amazing!

From what I hear the LH get together went off extremely well and so did the one the boys of the '82 batch had. Ours is tentatively scheduled for Dec 20 to Dec 23, 2007. What do you guys think? We need to find the others in the next few months so that we give them enough time to plan a trip to Kolkata in December. I hear off an on that some of you have bumped into someone or the other. Please email me whatever details that you might have, telephone number, mailing address, email id etc. We need to locate the others and soon.

Kitchen Remodel

We are in the process of redoing our kitchen. I am planning to replace the tile counter top with granite and add natural stone to the back splash. I also am changing all the appliances. I was going to do a before and after but chickened out. I will do an 'after' photo when it is completed. It is a ton of work because I am going solo on this one. The other half is too busy with work!
How are you all doing? Dipu, no news from you... Uj are you back in D or still in Cal?
Hi to all.

Happy New Year everyone. This is a picture of a small plant growing out of the lava stream in the Volcanoes National Park in the Big Island of Hawaii. To me it symbolizes new life, new beginings and hope.
Have a wonderful and safe 2007.

I wish all of you a very Happy New Year! I brought mine in quietly with family and it felt good. I'm trying to get my resolutions down on paper so that I dont welch on them! Want to join me in sharing them so that you feel compelled to see them through?
